Again though, he played an amazing innings today, so I'd rather not lump **** on him today if possible. He doesn't deserve it right now, so taste bait me some other time.

he's not been too bad. but it's time someone else captained the side; i think kohli is now ready.
Botham is saying (after Brumby's second post) that if India had faced, say, Cook and Trott batting as long as Kohli and Dhoni did, they probably wouldn't have come back like England did. That's fair enough.
But Kohli and Dhoni are fit cricketers. The way Brumby's post started when he first referred to Botham, it sounded like Botham were saying those two weren't quick so they got out after batting all day. WHich was obviously not the case.
kohli is a big game player. he rose to the occasion today
im sure he'll rise with the responsibilty of captaincy.
Not taste baiting as i've shared your opinion (though no where near to your extent I think his average is accurate, he's a 35-37 run average batsman) but it is interesting that he's done well recently.
Even in Sydney 1st innings he did okay compared to some others.
Well, not a fan of giving it to Gambhir/Sehwag in current form, so won't be that averse to giving it to Kohli if they did.
Would be throwing him straight to the deep end, but hey it's been done before with Graeme Smith.
Don't think the selectors will take that call though.
Yeah I think Dhoni will not be sacked after this knock, unless India absolutely capitulate and lose 3-1. But I think that is less likely to happen after today's play. Right now Eng 2-1 series win is more likely, and added with Dhoni's knock, they may not sack him.
